Seiji's $12 Reading Nook Update

Aya wrote in to share an update to her son Seiji's bedroom. Now that he is three, she wanted to give him a comfortable spot to read to his heart's content. She used items they already owned with one small purchase.

Remember Seiji's Train-themed bedroom from last year? Well it got a little revamp and now he has this cozy reading nook that cost all but $12! The bookshelf/storage unit is two Ikea Vattern bathroom cabinets laid down on their sides. The yellow artwork on the left is some leftover Ikea fabric wrapped around canvas that we already had. The only item we bought was the soft comfy charcoal colored floor pillow from a discount store for $12! Seiji loves his new favorite spot to lounge and read!

Thanks Aya!
